Baildon car-jacking victim describes how gunman threatened to shoot him


A BUSINESSMAN last night described how a gun was pointed to his head when he was robbed of his car in the driveway of his home.

The gunman, who had a scarf obscuring his face, threatened to shoot Chris Collinson, 54, unless he handed over the keys of his grey Land Rover Discovery Estate outside his home in Hollin Head, Baildon.

Mr Collinson, who works at an aluminium supplier in Yeadon, described the incident, which took place at about 9.40pm on Wednesday, as being like an out-of-body experience.


He said: “It was surreal, I was not scared and that’s not because I’m a big, brave man.

“It’s because I felt like it wasn’t happening to me, it felt like I was on the outside watching it happen.

“I was driving up the cul-de-sac and I noticed a car behind me, which was unusual with it being a cul-de-sac, and I didn’t recognise the car.

“My next-door neighbour but one had his car stolen off his drive the night before so I was already a bit suspicious.

“I was pulling on to my drive and I looked in the rear view mirror and saw the car, and the next minute there was a gun pointing at me through the side window.
